What could be better than a winter holiday in Jamaica mon? When you need to get away from the cold weather, it is definitely the place to go — and Jamaica’s peak season actually goes from December on to the early part of April. Hurricane season is over, the skies are sunny, and the beaches are sure to be warm as a dream.
Plus there are some great activities taking place in Jamaica during the winter, such as the Reggae Marathon, which follows seven miles of beach — and along each mile, you will be spurred on by live bands playing reggae music.
Bobsled Jamaica is a big draw as well — and yes, a lot of tourists are interested in it due to Cool Runnings. Thanks, John Candy!

If you have been debating for a while now where to go for Halloween on your vacation, well folks, you do not have to debate any longer before Sleepy Hollow in New York is going to be the place that you should go. Who could really forget Ichabod Crane and his encounters with the Headless Horseman? I know that I couldn’t, especially after that movie came out.
For those of you that had no idea that Sleepy Hollow was actually a town, it is! It is a very historical town that will actually lead you on a Sleepy Hollow Hayride that will truly make your dreams turn into nightmares.
If you have been looking for a place to celebrate Halloween, I can assure you that Sleepy Hollow is the best place!

What is the very first thing that you think about whenever you are traveling to Paris? For me – it is all about the Eiffel Tower and for most people, it is the same. The Eiffel Tower is actually one of those pieces of history that many people have seen but have not been educated about. That is what we are here for! I have a little background info on the Eiffel Tower and I am totally willing to share!
Firstly, the Eiffel Tower was actually designed by A.G Eiffel and it is actually situated right near the bank of river Sienna. This particular history tower is something that has been in Paris for quite a while and it actually has a lot of secrets in the design of it.
The engineer that made this masterpiece wanted it to be really – really high, so instead of metal, he actually used steel for this structure so it would be sound.

One of the first things that comes to my mind whenever I think about Ireland is the castles. There are a ton of different castles in Ireland and that is actually what this particular country is known for. Think about it – you have always wanted to see a castle up close and personal and when you take a vacation to Ireland – you will be able to!
A recently as 2003, Dublin Ireland has actually been voted one of the best places to not only visit but to actually live there as well. Speaking from my own personal experience, Ireland is actually one of the most majestic places to visit – whether you are looking for just a friendly face or some beautiful buildings, Ireland is the best.
If you are going to go to Ireland – go around St. Patrick’s Day. I swear, you won’t regret it at all!
